Club Success Planning for 2018-2019

The Club Success Planning session for BF Community TMC started with a pleasant sunny morning over at Mary Grace Cafe in the Alabang Town Center. Already at the venue were Ching, Cristina and Raul. If it weren't for ATC's malfunctioning parking booth boom bar, I would've arrived earlier.

UPS Alabang Toastmasters Club Mentoring - 8th

It was a one kind of an energy-filled meeting today at the UPS GBS Toastmasters Club with new guests and second-timers attending. Not only that, today marked a major milestone where all but one of the prepared speeches were evaluated by the members themselves.

Shown below from left to right: (front) Mhelody, guest, Leah, me, Owen, Lors, Reya, Jason, Anne, Romer and 3 guests, (back) Melvin, Jeffrey, Carla, Ron and Philip.

Jul 21, 2018 Toastmasters Meeting

It was a wet rainy club meeting today aptly themed "Rainy Season Is Here Again!" By the amount of members and new guests gracing the meeting, it was obvious that the monsoon rains from typhoons "Inday" and "Josie" weren't enough to dampen the Toastmasters spirit.

Shown below are those who attended the meeting.

Standing (L-R): Jude Ola, Russell Santos, Jeff Ganaba, guests Bry and Marvin, Marlon Sanchez, Chris Camacho, Mark Nuqui, guests Grace and Marlyn, me, Renzo Vergel de Dios, Nath Batac, Micha Vergel de Dios, Krissy R. guest Bing, Ed Ramirez.

Seated (L-R): Cristina Yung, Leah Catapia, Dolly de los Reyes, Duchess' kid and Duchess Munsayac,

Club Officers Training 1 of 2018-2019 for Divisions H & K

Early birds! And there was a bunch of us here at Johnson & Johnson's Training Room in ParaƱque City even before the registration opened. Today was the Toastmasters Club Officers Training Round 1 for both Division H and K. After last night's meeting with the UPS Alabang Toastmasters Club, I failed to check the J&J Training start time, whether it was 8am or 9am. So I came early today just to be sure.
Among the early birds were (L-R): Tess Siapno, Cecile Reynales, Bunz Abuyuan, Toto Gustilo. At the back is Paolo Tipan. That's me farther back and photobombing the Metro South Alabang TMC.

11th Anniversary Celebration for BF Community TMC

We just turned 11! That's right. It's BF Community Toastmasters Club 11th Anniversary Celebration and it was last June 30 to be exact.

And... it's to celebrate the club's receiving President Distinguished Award!

And... it's the Duchess' Royal Birthday Celebration too! So from the Strategic Planning Meeting and Induction of Officers and New Members, the club members walked towards the Royal Residence in Firenze.

Induction of Officers and New Members 2018-2019

Right after today's Strategic Planning Meeting, the Induction of Club Officers and New Members for the BF Community Toastmasters club followed. This was held at the Function Hall of the Firenze Subdivision in Imus City, Cavite.

Jul 7, 2018 Strategic Planning at Firenze - Write A Compelling Blog

Today, the BF Community Toastmasters Club held its Strategic Planning / Club Meeting at the Firenze Subd. Function Hall in Imus City, Cavite.

Most of the speakers today gave Educational Talks, rather than the usual speech projects. DTM Raul delivered a Keynote Speech that is creditable to his Pathways Project Level 5. Shown below is Raul delivering the Keynote Address speech with me (seated far left) evaluating him.
